Candles are my family business since 1866 and I love candle-making, so I look forward to sharing this experience with you. I think that a candle may change the atmosphere of the space you live in so I would be really glad if you can bring back home a "piece" of this experience.

My experience surpassed all my expectations. The venue is completely unique and overlooks all of the rooftops of Florence. The story telling was fascinating and educational, and the experience of learning about fragrances was only enhanced by the ever so enchanting “assistant”! Whilst the candles formed we took some Prosecco and treats on the utterly astounding roof terraced, and had the chance to chat with some of the most interesting people you will have the chance to meet in Florence. I will be recommending the experience to friends and family any time they visit the city!

Truly one of the most special experiences you will have in Florence! Sabrina & Luciano are very warm and inspiring couple, who welcomed us like good old friends, not strangers. It was very interesting and special to find out and exciting history about candle making and have guidance in trying different scents to recognize hidden notes of it’s complex compositions. And lastly, the location, the view and the setting of the experience is something you will not be able to imagine - guarantee. I would and I do recommend the experience for everybody very much.

This is the FIRST time my husband and l have ever done an Airbnb experience and it was amazing! Probably the highlight of our five day trip in Florence and we will treasure this memory for a long time. Sabrina fills the experience with history and information so you don’t only get a wonderful smelling candle but also an understanding of the art & craft. After that her and her husband shared great insider tips on dinner and aperitif location away from the touristy restaurants . Great people, great experience and great value - thank you.
